anyhow... with the exchange rate being so damn good, I have decided that I'm going to buy a whole load of CDs...

the only question I have, is this...

what is the sales tax in New York? (4%?) does it apply to tourists -(can I claim tax back at the airport in the same way as you can with the tax paid at some british shops that advertise tax free shopping?), I know that it applies to clothes/sports equipment, but does it apply to CD's?

I don't need to have an exact breakdown... I really only care about the items that it applies to, (specifically CDs).

How many cds are you planning on buying? enough to make it worth it to claim back the tax!!
